Dependable Group's story

Theresa is forty-three years old and married with three children. All her children are in school. She works very hard to help her husband provide for the children. She prepares and bakes bread. She started her operations with her mother when she was a little girl. In spite of the challenges she faces, she has managed to acquire a portion of land where she wants to build her own house. It is her bread business that brings hope to the family and support from her husband. She has customers who come to her to buy in bulk. Her only problem now has to do with adequate funds to buy raw materials to meet the demand. She requests a loan to allow her to remain in business, and she also wants to save some of her profits for her children's education. She is the leader of a trust bank group called ‘Dependable’. She is the one sitting in the group photograph. Most of the members of this group are petty traders, food vendors, etc. In this group, members guarantee for one another as social collateral in order to access the loan, and peer pressure to repay the loan.

In this group: Theresa, Gladys, Robert, Elizabeth, Forgive, Catherine, Elizabeth, Dorothy
